Grand Hotel

The Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station opened its doors to the public on 5 May 1873. It was the most luxurious and grand hotel in London when built – the first to have lifts, electric bells and revolving doors. By the 1930s, it had grown out of fashion and out of date – and in 1935, it closed as a hotel and was used as offices for the London Midland & Scottish Railway Company. In the 1960s, it survived a proposal for demolition. It lay empty for over 20 years before its recent renovation which commenced in 2006. This Grade I listed building has been brought back to life, and is now St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London.
